About BRANT HISTORICAL SOCIETY
The Brant Historical Society operates the Brant Museum and Archives and Myrtleville House Museum. Through each museum, the Society offers a variety of programs and services that explore the unique heritage of our community.
The Brant Museum & Archives, located at 57 Charlotte Street in Brantford, provides primary and secondary sources for researchers, including a collection of objects, library, and archives totalling over 65,000 items. The Society has operated this museum since 1910.
Myrtleville House Museum, located at 34 Myrtleville Drive, is one of the oldest homesteads in Brantford. A Heritage Canada Foundation property, the home has been restored to reflect early nineteenth century lifestyle. The BHS took over the daily operations of this site in 2008. Myrtleville House is the destination for our children's camps, and much of our school programming and family events.
The Brant Historical Society offers unique programming for children, families, adults, and seniors throughout the year, including summer and PA day camps, outreach programs, heritage walking tours, and special events.
